Cosy slippers for Fibre Arts Friday

It's not every week that I manage to finish another project so here I am joining in with Fibre Arts Friday again. This week I have mostly been playing with the second of two hanks of Rowan Colourscape Chunky which I bought on ebay several years ago. I felted my mum some slippers ages ago and they have worn out so I promised to make her something new. These are knitted to a very simple pattern called Toasty Toes Slippers.
 Like my homespun socks they are a pair but not strictly matching. Knitted up they measured 12 inches:
When put through the wash they shrank down to a nice neat 9 inches and they fit me snugly so they should be just right for mum. I might think about adding some soles to make them more hardwearing:

  3. I love them! They look super comfortable. I'd put bottoms on them, if they were mine...to last longer.

  5. They look great, and I love the way they don't match.
